Toolkit: Social isolation of seniors - A focus on LGBTQ seniors in Canada

resource image

This Toolkit is a resource to help organizations and service providers adopt approaches to help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) seniors strengthen human connections. Social isolation is a silent reality experienced by many seniors, particularly LGBTQ seniors. It is hoped that this resource will heighten awareness and sensitivity and help organizations address LGBTQ seniors’ particular social needs.

This is a supplement toolkit which should be read in conjunction with two other documents published by the Federal, Provincial and Territorial (FPT) Ministers Responsible for Seniors documents. Social Isolation of Seniors: Volume I – Understanding the Issue and Finding Solutions provides an overview of social isolation among seniors in Canada. Social Isolation: Volume II — Ideas Exchange Event Toolkit provides hands-on resources for groups. 

It is available as a webpage (see attached website link) or as a PDF (see attached document).

*This resource also relates to the search terms LGBTQ, LGBTQ2SIA and LGBTQ2IA.
